The Tree People live!

The Tree People, with our current lineup of Stephen Cohen on acoustic guitar and voice; Jeff Stier on recorders, flute, orchestra bells, hand drums and percussion; and Rich Hinrichsen on double bass, are rehearsing regularly and performing live again! We love playing with our new member, double bass player Rich! We are performing material from our first two albums as well as an album's worth of new material. We will update this post regularly with any upcoming scheduled Tree People performances or events.
The Tree People will be recording a live concert at the beautiful Big Red Studio in Corbett, Oregon (15- 2o minutes east of Portland near the Columbia Gorge) on Sunday, July 27th from 2 to 4 PM for a small audience of invited guests.
The Tree People will be then be in concert at the Mud Bay Coffee House in Olympia, Washington on August 10th at 3 PM
Tree People guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and composer Stephen Cohen will be performing all three days at the Philadelphia Folk Festival in Pennsylvania on August 15th, 16th and 17th with his Talk Talk Band and solo as well. When Stephen returns from Philadelphia, The Tree People will perform on Sunday, August 24 at the Arts in Nature Festival at Camp Long in West Seattle.
In September the Tree People will be doing a creative residency at Centrum at Fort Worden, not far from Port Townsend, Washington from September 19th to September 26th. We will be doing nothing but playing music that week, and will be recording more new material at the Synergy Studio on the Centrum grounds, as well as coming into Port Townsend on Wednesday, September 24th to perform live at the Upstage.
We plan to add many more performances and festivals to our schedule in years to come. Please let us know if you know of any festivals that you think the Tree People should consider. We are also interested in doing intimate performances at house concerts. If you have a house with a large living room or patio that could seat 20 to 75 people, and you would like to host a Tree People concert, or if you have a friend who might be interested in hosting such a concert in the Pacific Northwest, California, the Eastern United States, (or for that matter, anywhere in the world!) please let us know (contact Stephen at 503-772-9790 or and we will make it happen!
